Installing this piece is not for the novice. The instructions are terrible. As a matter of fact, they consist of phrases that don't even relate to one another. We tossed them and had to rely on past wiring experiences to proceed. Fortunately, all of the required pieces were included. A couple of the light shafts were crooked but easily guided back in to line. Be careful when doing this so you don't snap off the holder!. We had trouble leveling the light once it was wired in to place but finally figured out that it is imperative that the rods all connect in the same hook direction. Also be careful not to hang the rod that contains the hidden, wrapped wiring by the wire itself. Turns out that little mistake (which we had not noticed) was most of our leveling problem. All that said once we completed the installation we love it! It has a very high quality appearance and has updated our dining room. I love that the material it is made out of is a finished bronze that isn't quite black and isn't quite brown and goes well with the other lamps that are brass in the adjoining living room. Our shades are well trimmed with no frayed edges which another reviewer had trouble with. Be sure to snap the shade in place and not just rest it on the light shaft. If they are snapped into place, they are all lined up and straight. It takes a little pressure to snap them far enough down. All in all I would have given this 5 stars if it had been easier to install because the overall appearance is definitely 5 stars!
Ordered this chandelier hoping for a rustic look. It filled that bill. I was not around when the electricians installed it and because there was no picture of the chandelier on the box and only a single page of instructions it was a little more difficult. Having the picture would have helped. I arrived home at the end of installation and centering the fixture was a small challenge. It looks good. The 60 watt bulbs probably should be changed to about 40 watt probably but a dimmer will work. I think I like it! No table underneath yet though.
The light is very nice looking and good quality. It was difficult to get straight when we installed it a year ago and it still twists itself over time so every couple of months we have to adjust it again. Not sure why this happens, always seems to be right to left rotation, perhaps the wiring is twisted in the ceiling. Happy with the purchase as it suits the dining room perfectly, just wish it would stay still.
Loved this chandelier, "PB" style, until I opened the box. It's not well made. Very noticeable ding in hanging plate & it was not welded properly. Not the usual quality consistent with Overstock. But as usual Overstock made it work by sending a return label and taking care of everything.
